Carlisle United midfielder Danny Kearns has left the club, after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.
The 24-year-old signed on a two-year deal in July 2014, but went on to make just 12 appearances.
Danny is a great lad but he’s probably one of the players who hasn’t had as much opportunity to showcase himself as he would have wanted.
He was really unlucky with injuries when I first got here but his attitude throughout has been excellent. We’ve reached a compromise agreement which means he can now move on and hopefully further his career.
He wants to be playing football and his opportunities were limited here. I think this suits all parties and it goes without saying we wish him well as he moves on from Carlisle United.”

Carlisle United fans could be forgiven for already having one eye on their big League Cup trip to Merseyside next month.
But the players need to stay focussed in the search for a first league win of the season. They play Hartlepool tomorrow.
Ahead of the game the Blues boss Keith Curle says its important to encourage the team
it's a big weekend for Queen of the South. They host Rangers at Palmerston Park on Sunday.
The two sides are tied on points with both having three wins from their first three league games so far this season.
The Glasgow giants may have fallen on hard times in recent years but a visit from one of the biggest teams in Scottish football, particularly with the chance to go top at stake makes this a huge occasion for the Doonhamers
Stranraer are in cup action tonight when they take on Scottish Premier League side Hibernian at Easter Road.
Victory would be a huge achievement for the Stair Park side, but manager Brian Reid says they have nothing to fear.
There's league cup action north of the Border as Berwick Rangers travel to Kilmarnock while Queen of the South, who are undefeated so far this season take on Morton.
The Doonhamers are joint top of the Scottish Championship with Rangers while newly promoted Morton are struggling, but James Fowler says he won't be taking the visitors lightly.
Selkirk Football Club has become the first in Scotland to combine the beautiful game and the written word with its very own poet in residence.
Award-winning poet Thomas Clark has become the club's latest signing. Jenny Longden reports.
Selkirk FC poet in residence Thomas Clark recites his poem 'The Timin o the Run', whilst youngsters play at Yarrow Park.
The new poet in residence at Selkirk Football Club has already penned two poems about being a fan of the Lowland Football League club.
Thomas Clark says there is much more 'romanticism and poetry' in the smaller clubs, and they are a great inspiration for his writing.
Here are two of his poems:
It’s Scottish Cup day in Selkirk
An aw things are richt;
The redness on the leaves like yon,
The shinin on the watter like yon.
Och, it is a perfect day,
A joke for the guyin o the cynic an the pessimist
Wha woke up sure it would be comin doon;
An no a clood in the sky, nor a drap on the breeze,
Hints at the troubles aheid.
The Timin o the Run
Leavin the pub at hauf past two is plenty,
Take in the fine delights
O the river’s stroll tae Philiphaugh. How quiet it is. How the leaf-lined streets
Barely betray a passer-by.
Even when the rugby boys are at hame,
An their grund is dotted wi blue an red,
Whit guilty pleasure! Walkin on by their gate,
Like passin a rival kirk en route tae mass.
An so we dawdle, in oor watch-checkin way,
Pickin up pace as three comes near,
Turnin the corner at the cricket club
An steppin intae Yarrow Park;
An as the ref blaws his whistle
An the captain claps his hauns,
It’s as if the Souters
Have been stood there aw day,
Waitin for you tae show up.
